On Nikon Df preview (2817 comments in total)

This so called"retro" trend must be a very effective way of milking the vain and the shallow. Why not make even older looking cameras and put even more absurd prices on them.

I kind'a wander about the choice of f8 too. Is it because the lens performs badly below it or the photographer wanted to get the maximum DOF. But then the background hasn't got much to do with the subject. It's a mystery.

oselimg: Leica know something but the enthusiast and the pro's don't? It may be that Leica don't make these cameras for photographers instead they make them for the richest 3% which we have no idea about where they live or what they do. I can't imagine any hard working middle class going for it. Errm there is the third possibility too; Leica are trying to bankrupt "elegantly" for tax reasons.

You seem to have talked to them so share your wisdom with us. Richness in material simply comes with the material value/price of what you do. And material richness of all kinds require material poorness of others including basic needs.

Leica have got the strategy wrong in my opinion. They should offer lamb chops instead of the inedible pouch.

njkdo: Nice pics really, more like Benetton advertising campaign than documentary photos, and ten years for this is really too much.
Maybe a look at Josef Koudelka photos could help.
Very beautiful pics, this is my favorite style.

Minimum two people here don't understand what they read.

You expect Magnum/National Geography type documentary? Not any longer I'm afraid in this vain world. Even suffering should look good and shouldn't disturb us.

Great sharpness, great colours and lack of CA's. This lens is well worth consideration on those points plus the speed it offers throughout the zoom range of course. My only question is whether the bokeh performance could be better.

Nikon's apology is worse than their crime.

These are exciting new lenses for E mount camera owners and look promising at least by their specifications but I also think that this is an indication Sony is not going to compete on FF DSLRS with Canon and Nikon.

Had the alligator read Dpreview's verdict before it chose Canon and will it write in the forums too having used the camera?

umur: Really?????????

I understand the difference between art and photography, and the overlap (i think). What I don't understand is why Dpreview admin feel this deserves a mention when there are millions of people out there churning out real photos every day!

Ps. I also don't get the recent love on this site for instagram.
Call me a hater if you want :(

@umur...I don't have any information on the subject but if instagram is linked to google or amazon the recent love of instagram thus explained.

Dpreview is a technical information source. With the latest "collection of art" this has been proven once again.

In reply to:

Frank_BR: The pictures show that those photographers were not too concerned with getting crazy shallow DOF or "artistic" bokeh :-)

Could it be because photographers appropriately wanted to show the environment too? Or do you think shallow DOF was invented with the advent of digital cameras?

Direct link | Posted on Aug 19, 2013 at 07:26 UTC

well...too expensive line of cameras for what they were. I don't think Nikon should look for any other reason IMHO.
